Default Homemade manifold

There was a guy who's father had a welding shop. He made his own manifold. And then stated they may start selling them.

I can't find the thread. Does anyone know how to contact him?

I'm going to search again for the thread with places to buy flanges.

If you know of any please post it.


Thanks.

Weirtech and CMB (forum sponsor) both have flanges.
Was it MXV with the tubular manifold?

EDIT: It wasn't MXV i was mistaken, can't seem to remember the guys name.
Considering the lack of popularity and people currently running those manifolds I wouldn't think that they are still for sale or necessarily a reliable source for a tubular manifold.

18 psi mentioned in his mani build thread that his dad was a welder and they thought about making modified log manifolds. I don't think it ever went anywhere.

I mentioned that in my manifold thread. I was contacted by a couple locals and we have since then made 1 more miata manifold (per customers specs), 3 nissan 240sx manifolds for different ka-t setups, and 1 for a skyline rb20det swap. As fasr as on here, p51shellfire contacted me to make him one when he has the money.

I'm not advertising this as any kind of professional service or anything "vendor" related, just mentioned that IF anyone needed anything like that I could help them out.
